Added DiffLines:

* DownerEnding: The episode ''The Comic'' ended with Queen Gwen angrily leaving King Rollo when King Rollo was too busy reading a comic book at the dinner table to pay any attention to her. King Rollo then laments that he now has nothing to do.

Added DiffLines:

* NarratingTheObvious: Inevitable, given its very young target audience.


* TheCaligula: An unusually benign example, but Rollo is nonetheless completely incapable of being in charge of a lemonade stand, let alone a kingdom.

Added DiffLines:

A British young children's cartoon made in 1980, consisting of [[BritishBrevity 13 five-minute episodes]]. Each episode was focused around the antics of Rollo, an inept and profoundly [[{{Manchild}} childish]] monarch, who was kept in check by his parent figures, the [[CourtMage magician]] and [[AlmightyJanitor cook]].

!Tropes in this series:
* AlmightyJanitor: Rollo would usually defer to the advice of the cook.
* TheCaligula: An unusually benign example, but Rollo is nonetheless completely incapable of being in charge of a lemonade stand, let alone a kingdom.
* CourtMage: The Magician.
* ImprobableAimingSkills: When playing with his toy bow and arrow, Rollo hits the bullseye with his first shot, and hits the shaft of the previous one with each of the next two.
* {{Manchild}}: The basic premise of the show.
* ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything: The kingdom requires absolutely no royal supervision to keep it ticking over. This is fortunate for Rollo, whose time is thus freed up for activities such as climbing trees and playing with a train set. It is also fortunate for the population, who would no doubt be in for a world of trouble if their king ever had to make a decision more momentous than which sock he should put on first.
* PluckyComicRelief: Hamlet the cat.
* SillyWalk: Rollo never goes anywhere without flailing his arms wildly.
* SolemnEndingTheme: After Rollo's selfish comic-reading at the dinner table causes Queen Gwen to abandon him, the usual happy ending music is replaced with this.
